>Daigoro vs. Goliath It's a really weird movie, but actually a lot of fun to watch. It's basically about Japan as a country having their own giant monster raised by people, the baby of their Godzilla equivalent (always wrecking shit, etc.). Then a bigger monster from space shows up, and the Japan monster (Diagoro) has to learn to fight him. I seriously wish there were sequels to it, the movie is just fun.
>The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms Classic. Giant lizard goes on a rampage, lots of destruction, lots of cool imagery of the Rhedosaurus wrecking shop.
>Rebirth of Mothra 3 Skip the first two, which are aimed entirely at little girls. The third one, however, is a lot darker with some great visuals. Grand Ghidorah is one of the best looking (if not THE best next to Showa) Ghidorahs Toho has ever made. A lot of cool visuals, and more character depth to the Fairies than ever before. All you need to know going in is that Heisei Mothra's dead, she gave birth to Mothra Leo, Mothra Leo's pretty much unbeatable with a million beam attacks, and the Fairies have sister who is a cunt.
>>10941301 I'm adding on "Gamera vs. Monster X," "Gamera vs. Barugon," and the Japanese "Gamera vs. Viras" without the 20 minutes of stock footage.
"Monster X" is surreal entertainment. "Barugon" actually has a really interesting plot with the humans. There isn't enough Gamera and the mid-fight is really slow, but it's actually kind of compelling watching these thieves all fight to survive the consequences (BIG consequences) of their actions. "Viras" is fun alien invader goofiness.
Any of the old Toho solo movies, Mothra, Rodan so on. Atragon's really cool. >>10941324 >Gamera vs Monster X oh yeah, the one at Expo `70. Yeah, that one's cool. That was the same guy who was Cornjob in Gamera vs Guiron?
>>10941281 Daimajin Trilogy is fucking fantastic if you love your Japanese period dramas, with the added bonus of a giant terracotta Samurai God wrecking shit. It's available on Region Free Blu-Ray too, same as the Hisei Gamera trilogy. Haven't seen the recent reboot, which is more of a coming of age dorama.
I'm a big fan of Showa Gamera, and movies of that era in general. Ishiro Honda made some fantastic stuff back in the day... sadly, a lot of it is hard to find in good quality. For now.Torrent soon, keep your eyes peeled.
>>10941640 "The Brave" made the mistakes that the Trilogy avoided: It tried too hard to generate emotion. The whole drama of Toto is just stock drama with no real need for Gamera, or even a giant monster. It's just too generic for me to care, and most of the time it's the score trying to make you feel sad. The Trilogy just plays on what makes the genre unique: The giant monsters. When you first see Gamera in "Guardian of the Universe," you really get a sense of just how big he is, and when he starts getting his ass whooped in "Advent of Legion," you feel the pain, and the fear of Legion taking over the planet.
>>10948072 Heh, that could be fun. A weekend monster movie stream or something. I've never done anything like that, but I'll look into it. Keep your eyes out for a torrent, too, like I said, that whole collection's going up once I rip my last 2 Gamera BDs (which I will do after I clear some hard drive space - BD50s are fucking enormous).
